Listening to the Messenger: Archangel Gabriel and Gemstones Ammonite, Dolomite, and Scolecite

Archangel Gabriel inspires and guides you to deeper understanding. Through dreams, inspired inner knowing, and true listening of the voice within, you can ‘hear’ Gabriel’s guidance.

Gabriel is a Divine Oracle and through self-development align with this archangel to develop your own oracular skills. Archangel Gabriel is well known as the messenger to announce the birth of the Messiah 200 years before his birth when he ‘appeared to Daniel’. Gabriel is the Angel of the Annunciation.

Gabriel spent around 22 years upon Earth appearing regularly to dictate the Koran to Mohammed. And, other incidences of note are that Gabriel also appeared to Zacharias to let him know of the birth of John the Baptist or John the Precursor. His wife, Elizabeth, was too old to give birth so when Zacharias didn’t believe Gabriel he struck him mute until the baby was born. Gabriel is also known to be the angel that seals the secrets of heaven and prior lives within the child by pressing her fingers to their lips leaving a soft mark that appears as a cleft beneath the nose.

There are many gemstones that can amplify your connection with Archangel Gabriel. A few of them are Ammonite, Dolomite, and Scolecite. The guidance of this archangel strongly points to going within to know, hear, and experience truth and information.

Ammonite’s message is “I know the truth in the center of myself. All the answers lie within. I recall my dreams and use them as tools to help guide me.”

The spiritual uses of ammonite send you into the center of your own consciousness due to the spiraling structure of this fossil. It’s especially useful to use for dream work, meditation, spiral dance, and walking a labyrinth or a medicine wheel. Because of this fossil’s association with snakes or serpents, ammonite has been associated with healing power and oracular abilities.

Dolomite’s focus is “I think outside the box. My ideas are fresh and creative. I easily manifest my artistic thoughts.”

Dolomite improves the meditation experience. Use this stone with the intention of creating new pathways of consciousness by opening up to unexplored avenues for raising your awareness. For example, instead of a sitting meditation, try a moving meditation such as tai chi or a nature walk or explore lucid dreaming and shamanic journeywork to expand your spiritual horizons.

Scolecite, with mindful intention, aligns you with all the angels. Repetitively think these thoughts: “I consciously request and accept the help of angels. My life flows easily with grace. The energy of healing, love, and well-being flows through me. My intuition is intact.”

The spiritual uses of Scolecite include that it amplifies your intention to remember your dreams. This stone opens the portals residing in the crown, third eye, and throat chakras, allowing for the download and processing of Divine inspiration, healing light, and true wisdom. It is especially beneficial for guiding your higher consciousness to be a Divine channel of God’s love and to connect with Archangel Gabriel.

Every day is a good day to call on the assistance of your angels. Remember that you always have an angel at your side. Feel grateful that angels light your path and inspire you. Know that you are able to handle any situation that arises. Stay focused on angelic assistance and appreciate the support available to you from them in all areas of your life.

Allow Archangel Gabriel to inspire and guide you through dreams and inspiration. Believe yourself and know the true voice within.

Challenging Transformations with Amethyst

There are cycles when life is just plain challenging. It seemingly comes out of nowhere but in reality, the challenges are often the result of complacency. Eventually, the cosmic two-by-four will essentially knock you upside the head to get you to pay attention and wake up! This two-by-four is ultimately a huge gift in personal development which opens the door to a positive transformation. The challenging experiences come in various forms depending on your personal life circumstances. Grab a piece of amethyst – or a pile of amethyst – and work with the positive vibrations of purple crystalline structure to restore your life and your equilibrium.

Amethyst is great for changing any situation. Use it when you are having trouble with friends or any difficult situation. The truth is that you can always change your life. It starts with changing your thoughts and your perception of reality. Focus on gratitude and use amethyst for mindfulness when you repetitively misunderstand others or are being misunderstood.

Take the time to contemplate what you want your life to be like and to feel like. With amethyst in hand or nearby, put your attention on the needed changes. Focus all of your awareness on what it will take to get those changes to happen. Then, do it!  

Imagine the color purple flowing around you as you reinvent your life experiences. Use amethyst to think clearly and intelligently, access your intuition, answers you need, and balance your mind.

Use this Amethyst Positive Thought Affirmation:

“I see, sense, feel and know life is magical. I release all habits no longer for my highest good. I have a great connection with my spirit guides and angels. I am very intuitive. I trust my feelings. It’s easy for me to take action to create the life I want to experience.”

Animal Ally Spider and Vibrational Matching Stone Picasso Stone

Spider totem is an ally for writers. It has been said that the first letters of the alphabet or the written word were inspired by the various designs found in the webs of spiders. Writing is one of the tools for creating reality 

Spider made itself known to me. Unfortunately, I first recognized Spider showing up because I was bitten by Spider at almost every Sacred Circle Gathering—a medicine wheel event—that I facilitated for over a decade. After that, Spider would show up in more amicable ways. Most of the time, Spider is quite large and obvious when it has a message for me. 

When connecting with Spider, it is good to know about Spider Woman, a deity in the Navajo religion and Hopi cosmological teachings. Spider Woman is considered the creator of humans and a great benefactor.  

There is an old Hopi story about the people who had many differences and had forgotten their connection with the creator. They had lost their conscience to act with integrity. Those who remembered how to walk in balance on the earth and harmoniously with each other were guided by Spider Woman to survive earth challenges. 

Spider’s vibrational matching gemstone is Picasso Stone. Picasso stone helps you get up and get moving. If you perceive blocks, real or imagined, use Picasso stone as a tool for transforming your emotions and achieve life-enhancing self-transformation. When mental confusion arises, contemplate the lines mapped within this stone. Use it as a tool for focus. Just as Spider must build and rebuild her web, you, too, must hold a clear vision of what you want in your web and what you want it to look like. If a piece of your world becomes tangled, both Picasso stone and Spider medicine can help you untangle the confusion so that you can rebuild.

Clarity, Truth, and Wisdom: Owl and the Indicolite Gemstone

Owl appeared in my life as a totem before I had any ideas about animal totems or power animals. One early morning in the early 1980s, upon returning from a night of disco dancing, I arrived home to find three small owls perched on the railing of my condo’s walkway. Being a recent transplant from Brooklyn, this startled me considerably and the image is etched indelibly in my heart and mind. In retrospect, owls were part of my life during college a few years prior to that experience. My alma mater, Florida Atlantic University, has the owl as its mascot. In fact, the land is a sanctuary for animals.  

Over the years, there have been a number of significant events showing me that Owl is one of my power animals. As a primary totem, this bird brings the vibration of wisdom, cognizance, and knowledge. This totem is found in the east quadrant of the wheel of life lending clarity and perspective in order to know the truth in all matters. With its royal associations, indicolite is a stone of wise leadership which requires expanded awareness. Indicolite is blue tourmaline and has a very similar vibration as blue sapphire and gem-quality blue kyanite. 

If you have an inkling that Owl is one of your allies, take the time to connect deep within your consciousness. Trust yourself as you develop the ability to see, feel, know, and hear what lies beneath the surface. Follow your intuition. Pay attention to your dreams. If you don’t have a habit of remembering your dreams then focus on what you feel and think when you first wake up. Inner guidance and knowledge is yours.  

Owl Affirmation: Knowledge and wisdom regarding secrets are revealed to me when needed. It’s easy for me to see the unseen and hear the unsaid. I acknowledge and trust my intuition. 

When Owl shows up in your life, pay attention to your inner knowing. Hidden agendas can be revealed to you. Maintain a sense of calm, stay focused, and sort out thoughts in a peaceful manner. The truth is available to you now and always.

Attention Rock Hounds and Animal Lovers!

All creatures, great and small, in all species on this planet are interconnected. There are many teachings available to us through the observation of a particular animal totem and their habits and patterns. I’ll be sharing and exploring how the associated gemstone for each animal totem is a further indication of the energy of the animal as symbolism and a teaching on your sacred journey. Crystals, minerals, and stone offer your insights to evolve your soul and spirit in this incarnation.

Stay tuned for regular posts on my blog on MargaretAnnLembo.com and within the Facebook Group, Margaret Ann Lembo’s Book Club. We’ll explore 88 animal allies and gemstones for spiritual fulfillment.

Honoring Sacred Space

Do you honor the sacred space of others? Is it easy for you to set boundaries and express them with ease and grace? Do youbalk at the idea of simple rules or do you find yourself offended or above the rules? How easily are your buttons pushed by others and do you take the time to figure out why you are reacting in a childish manner?
What is etiquette? “Etiquette is the customary code of polite behavior in a society or among members of a particular profession or group.” There are the rules established in various spaces because not all beings are trained in situational awareness, or socialized to know or follow protocol or appropriate behavior.

Amber Gemstone Affirmation. Amber is a tool for recalling past lives with the intent to uncover how those memories can help you in your lifenow.

Sometimes policies are created for the well-being of the space and all that enter there. The reasons for policies and procedures aren’t always clear, yet know there is most likely a good reason the policy is put in place.
The home is a sacred space. When a householder states that you must take your shoes off before entering a home, then take your shoes off or don’t enter. A business is a sacred space and policies and procedures as a customer or an employee are to be followed.
For example, if a store owner (like myself) requires that you carry a shopping basket while in the store, then carry the basket or don’t shop in that store. If you are on the line in a store, bank, restaurant, crowded beach, or in any public place, refrain from speaking on your mobile phone or remove yourself from the presence of others. When driving, keep enough space between you and your fellow drivers, follow the rules and etiquette on the road or stay home.
When you find yourself highly insulted by something and you feel very offended by the rules of the sacred space of others, take the time to contemplate the source of the feelings that create that reaction.
When you establish boundaries or clearly state the etiquette of the sacred space, don’t cave in because someone is throwing a tantrum. Rather, step into graceful communication and stay firm with the policy or boundaries that are instituted. Maintain neutral and stay in a state of grace and love when someone is demonstrating that they are challenged because of boundaries that you have set in place.
Love is the ultimate vibration to transform and transmute challenging situations. Stay focused on vibrating love, breathe deeply, and know all is well.
Awaken your consciousness for higher understanding and wisdom.
Peace,

Saints and Souls

Chakra Awakening Crystal Healer Course

Saints and Souls

Today we celebrate All Saints Day and tomorrow All Soul’s Day. It is believed that All Saints Day started during the 7th century by Pope Boniface IV who officially established the day to honor all saints and ask them for guidance.

 All Souls Day is a day to pray for the dead. The Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos is celebrated the day after All Saints Day. All Souls Day was established during the 10th century by Saint Odilo who proposed this day would honor the departed. Most celebrated by Christians, there has been evidence that it dates to 3000 years ago before Christianity. Día de los Muertos it is primarily celebrated in Latin communities.

 

I have always been fascinated with the lives of saints. This fascination led me to develop the Masters, Mystics, Saints & Gemstone Guardians Cards. Today I thought it only fitting to highlight some of the saints from the deck.

 Masters, Mystics, and Saints still share their energy and messages. Matching the vibration of these teachers with crystals, minerals, and stones provide guidance and messages of hope, happiness, and well-being. The Gemstone Guardians are the devic force of the gemstone that add energetic assistance in achieving goals and desires through color and geometric structure of the stone.

On each of the cards contained in this deck is a question for contemplative thought, Divine Guidance, and a positive affirmation.

From the back of the card – the following

Have you been getting outdoors often enough?

Are You spending time reconnecting with nature?

Get outside and dig your hands into the earth. Garden, play in the grass with animals, walk in nature, and allow the ground beneath your feet and the sun above your head to nurture and realign you.

 

 

 

 

From the back of the card – the following

Do you feel the presence of the Divine Mother?

Do you seek comfort and motherly love?

 

 

 

 

Align with grace and the ever-present vibration of compassion, kindness, and mercy. Decide to release issues and vibrate at a rate that emanates peace, love, and well-being Open your mind to allow miracles beyond your dreams to manifest.

 

 

 

Tomorrow we remember and pray for our loved ones that have crossed over. It is a time to reflect on their legacy and the contribution they have made in our lives. 

 

With love and gratitude,

Margaret Ann Lembo
